How To Grow Hair in Just Days
There’s a new marketing gimmick going on in hair care… And if you’re not careful, it could end up costing you a pretty penny.
When you walk up and down the aisle of any drug store, you’ll notice the shelves are stocked with “protein-rich” shampoos that promise to feed and to renourish your hair.
Making it stronger, longer and thicker.
But before you fork over your cash, there’s something you should know…
Your hair is dead. So it’s already too late to try to nourish it with your $30 bottle of shampoo.
To revive your hair you have to start by working at the roots. And the best way to do that is with a revolutionary new plant technology that comes from a sour apple.
Let me explain…
Grow Hair With Stem Cells
There is an unusual variety of apple called Uttwiler Spätlauber. It comes from Switzerland — and it’s able to repair its skin just like new if you puncture or cut it.
The secret is plant stem cells that naturally transform the apple from damaged to perfect. Whenever there is an injury to the apple, a special molecule sends out an SOS signal. The stem cells in the plant respond by getting to work repairing and rebuilding.
Now, we can’t use plant stem cells to directly regrow hair. But new biotechnology has done something ingenious.
Scientists have isolated the apple’s signal molecule — the SOS call for help.
The same molecules that rally stem cells in plants can activate your own stem cells. These SOS molecules can tell your body to produce younger, stronger hair cells.
In a lab test, hair follicles were kept in a solution of this special apple extract. They grew for 18 days. But untreated follicles died after just 14 days.1 So the apple extract prolonged the life of hair follicles. It stopped them from dying. That can lead to thicker, stronger hair.
Natural Hair Product Available
This new technology is so exciting I’ve added it to a new hair product I’m developing. Stay tuned for more details…
In the meantime, there are other ways you can stop hair loss and thinning hair. For years I’ve been helping women recapture the look and vibrant feeling of thick, luxurious hair. I do it by correcting a hormone imbalance that’s a big cause of thinning hair.
You see, high testosterone can often lead to baldness. Normally women don’t have to worry about that. They don’t have as much testosterone. It’s blocked by the female hormone progesterone. But as you age, progesterone can plummet. Testosterone can step in and take its place.
And here’s the thing…
Once testosterone takes hold, it breaks down into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a powerful hormone that causes a boy’s body to mature during puberty. It gives men their “manly” traits. It’s also responsible for male pattern baldness.
Revive and Re-Nourish Thinning Hair Naturally
When I test women with thinning hair I usually find a high level of DHT in their blood. But you can turn that around. Research shows a number of natural plant-based nutrients can block hair-destroying DHT. Here are three ways you can regrow thicker, fuller hair starting right now.
1. Black Cumin Seed
The oil from black cumin seed (nigella sativa) was used in ancient Egypt for hair conditioning and strength. Cleopatra is said to have used it on her glossy black hair.Black seed is rich in beta-sitosterol. This is a very potent natural DHT blocker. In one study a group of people were treated with black cumin seed oil for three months. Results showed 90% of the black seed group had increased hair thickness compared to only 7% in the placebo group.2Look for black cumin seeds at health food stores or online. You might see them also called Roman coriander, black sesame, black caraway or onion seed. But don’t confuse them with the common kitchen spice cumin. They come from totally different plant families.Black cumin seeds have a spicy, peppery taste. Toast them lightly, grind them, and use them like any other spice. Or mix the ground seeds with a teaspoon of raw honey or warm milk.You can also find oil pressed from black cumin seeds. But don’t fall for cheap versions. They’re chemically purified with hexane, and mixed with other oils. Look for organic 100% pure black seed oil. You can rub it into your hair and scalp.
2. Saw Palmetto (Serenoa Repens).
Like black seed oil, this plant inhibits the formation of DHT because it’s rich in beta-sitosterol. A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine examined beta-sitosterol’s effectiveness in blocking DHT.The study analyzed people between the ages of 23 and 64 with hair loss. The participants took either beta-sitosterol or a placebo. The researchers found that 60% of the men receiving beta-sitosterol had improved hair growth. They also lost less hair than the placebo group.3For hair growth, I recommend getting at least 300 mg of beta-sitosterol every day. That means you’ll probably want to supplement. Look for products made with saw palmetto.
3. Panax Ginseng.
One of the most effective natural remedies for thinning hair is panax ginseng, or “true” ginseng. Like beta-sitosterol, panax ginseng promotes hair regrowth when hair loss is caused by too much DHT.4Panax ginseng also boosts blood supply to the scalp to regrow hair. In one study, volunteers using ginseng regrew more and thicker hair than those using a standard treatment alone.5 Massaging panax ginseng into your scalp twice a day delivers ginseng directly to your follicles to produce a thick, full head of hair. You can also buy supplements. But make sure you get panax ginseng. Don’t confuse it with American or Siberian ginseng. Take 200 mg to 500 mg daily.
